Illinois State Police and the FBI have concluded a dig at a home in southwest suburban Joliet after receiving new leads in the case of a woman who went missing in 1990.

No new developments came from the dig which unearthed a portion of a residential concrete basement slab in the 100 block of South Margaret Street in Joliet, according to ISP.

The dig was the result of new leads provided in the case of Robin Abrams, a former Will County sheriff’s officer who disappeared on Oct. 4, 1990.

The residents of the Joliet home are not involved in the case and were relocated during the dig, police said.

Abrams, 28, was last seen driving away from her family’s Beecher home in her red Dodge Daytona, the Sun-Times previously reported. Her father filed a missing persons report after her car was found abandoned in south suburban Harvey.

Her purse was discovered a few blocks from her car shortly after her disappearance.
